I guess an “indefinite suspension” really only means about three weeks nowadays. That seems to be the case in Ann Arbor as the Michigan Wolverines have reinstated the associate athletics director that was arrested on suspicions of drunk driving back in May.
According to College Football Talk, associate AD Jim Minick was arrested for allegedly driving while in intoxicated on May 9. He was never charged with drunk driving, but head coach Jim Harbaugh took no chances and suspended Minick the morning after his arrest.
It now seems that Minick is back on back on somewhat good terms with the program, according to a quote from Harbaugh.
“Jim is back working in the program,” Harbaugh confirmed after working a satellite camp in Alabama Friday. “There’s a plan in place, and he’s following through with it, and I think it’s going to have a positive outcome.”
While Minick is back working with the program, he is still not in the clear when it comes to the Pittsfield Township police. Toxicology reports that will determine whether or not Minick will be charged or not, have yet to come back. Minick apparently refused to take a breathalyzer test following his arrest.
This situation is increasingly gaining steam and we at Campus Sports will keep you updated on Minick and his future with the Michigan program.
